Speedway ace Lewis Bridger took part in a book signing on Saturday at the Waterstones store in Eastbourne.
He was helping his aunt, Trisha Bridger, promote her book Why Can't I Fly.
Trisha, from Uckfield, wrote the book for her young daughter Niamh and has published it to raise money for Diabetes UK.
Young and old Eastbourne Lifestyle Eagles supporters went to the lunchtime signing to buy the book, chat speedway with Lewis and have the opportunity to have their photograph taken with one of Britain's top riders.
Trisha and Lewis are pictured with Jack Bridges, aged 13, from Eastbourne.
